Did you know that PAMA introduced a web-based app that calculates the energy savings of awnings? The Energy Savings Calculator was designed to allow its users to input awning specifications to get the total dollars in energy savings from awning products. If you’re not familiar with the app, or just haven’t had a chance to try it, you’ll want to attend this webinar! We’ll present a technical explanation so you’ll understand the science behind it. Plus, you’ll learn how to navigate the software and how and why to use the app as a sales tool.
